Today's the day I leave on my extended trip. The one I get to go on instead of the one I wanted to go on. Which is OK, as far as it goes, because the one I wanted to go on has turned into a sort of living nightmare for the ones who went. Don't ask, just know that everyone got sick, and no one gets to come home for MUCH longer than they thought (and those two things are absolutely unrelated).
Anyway, I'm going to try to keep posting while I'm away. We'll see how successful that is.
Wish me luck.
